Synopsis


Broken Trail
Sideways star Thomas Hayden Church appears alongside Academy Award-winner Robert Duvall in a dramatic mini-series shot in the classic western tradition. The year is 1897. As Print Ritter (Duvall) and his estranged nephew Tom Harte (Church) travel the slow road to reconciliation, they reluctantly find themselves forced to care for five abused and abandoned Chinese immigrants while simultaneously attempting to deliver a herd of horses across the plains. Soon confronted by a gang of malevolent kidnappers who intend to abduct the girls and use them for the own nefarious purposes, Print and Tom determine to keep their young charges out of harms way while ensuring that their valuable delivery reaches its intended destination. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Excellent Western Movie

    If you enjoy Westerns such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Unforgiven and Open Range, then you will enjoy this film as well. Actually, the film is very similar to Open Range. Cowboys are moving horses (for sale) from one location to the another and rescues 5 women in distress. While tending to their horses and caring for the women, the cowboys run into problems while staying at "dead-end" town. The cowboys rescue another woman with a dark past and a man. A cut thoat posse is assembled to capture the problematic woman. The film is long but steady.

    A beautiful Western movie, but at times rough and violent. Not for children 13 and under. It shows prostitution and slavery as a business, talks of venereal disease, revealing tight corsets and brief nudity of young Chinese women as they are being inspected. Life is shown as rough and out in the Western country. In one scene, a lame horse is not treated, but suddenly shot in the head.

    You don't get a whole lot better than this combination of director and actor. Brilliant work from lead actors, while being guided by Walter Hill.

    Good rendition of the history of actual events in the west. Although not exactly the way it happened, it was still a good movie.

    This is one of the family favorites to watch about the Old West. Very satisfying picture of life in the "old days"

    This is NOT an action western. It's more a character study. If you expect action, you will be bored in half an hour.
